Lewisham College proudly presented its Maths Competition 2023, drawing enthusiastic participants of both learners and staff to join in this popular annual competition.  

This year’s Maths Competition was launched to learners with 15 different questions ranging from Level 1 to GCSE answering questions on money problems, Algebra, percentage change, and Quadratics. More than 327 learners entered the competition, with 131 participants progressing to the live quiz and kinaesthetic activities, including Lewisham College staff. Five people made it to the final; two 16-18 study programme learners and three adult learners studying Computing, Business, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and Maths. 

The spotlight fell on the five finalists at the event, Oluwagbemiga Agunbiade, Heikyung Lawman, Khadija Hamza, Khadijeh Khalilipashakolaee, and Andrei Kiselev, who faced-off in a dynamic quick-fire quiz in front of an audience of staff and learners. Each finalist tackled challenging questions, showcasing their problem-solving skills and calculations whilst the judges deliberated over the participants' calculations and responses. 

Oluwagbemiga Agunbiade was crowned as this year's Maths Champion with each finalist receiving a distinctive Lewisham College Maths Competition 2023 award, recognising their outstanding contributions.

Khadijeh Khalilipashakolaee, Lewisham College GCSE student and finalist, said: “I love maths, it is more than just a subject, it's a vital part of everyday life. Whether you're shopping, managing time, or planning, maths is indispensable. Initiatives like this make learning math enjoyable, building social connections and moments of laughter.”

Jamie Stevenson, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “Congratulations to Oluwagbemiga for winning this year’s Maths Competition. Everyone who entered the competition showed great passion, not only for learning but also for inspiring and motivating their peers during this fantastic competition. It’s been an impressive turnout for this year’s event with so many learners putting their knowledge to the ultimate maths test.  

"Lewisham College prides itself on its commitment to our learners' education and we thoroughly enjoy hosting these events to engage and inspire our students. We can’t wait for next year’s!”
